Comic-Con is Going Virtual Once Again


Looks like we will have to wait until 2022 to experience Comic-Con IRL.

The popular multigenre entertainment and comic book convention held in San Diego is going virtual once again. Earlier today, organizers announced that the event will be held virtually from July 23-25.

“While we are buoyed by the rollout of the vaccine and the growing number of individuals being inoculated, it appears that July will still be too early to safely hold an in-person event of the magnitude of Comic-Con,” organizers said in a statement. “While we lament the postponement of the in-person Comic-Con, our commitment to this community of fans and our celebration of comics and the related popular arts endures as an important part of who we are.”
